Notes & Reviews:

Avie spurred the renaissance of Hans Gal's music with the first-ever release of his complete works for solo piano (AIE 2064). The 3-CD set, performed by Leeds Competition winner Leon McCawley, garnered a Gramophone Editor's Choice and brought Gal's effortlessly pleasing music to a broader public. German violinist Annette-Barbara Vogel has become one of Gal's most ardent proponents. She has also recorded Gal's Violin Concerto and Concertino, which will be released in 2010.

Gramophone Magazine
This is not Annette-Barbara Vogel's first Gál recording...Her new account is more assured still, more relaxed in allowing the music's inner volatility without trying too hard...

Sunday Times
It's music well worth championing, the product of the musically comparatively conservative side of the new Viennese school...plenty of rich tonal harmony and adventurous harmonic excursion, together with a ripe sense of the lyrical, an expansive view of classical forms and unexpected sharp contrasts of mood.
